Reuseum Educational, a local non-profit that provides learning opportunities in STEM for children, received a generous contribution Monday, Nov. 6.

Reuseum was presented with a check for $35,200 from Idaho's First Lady Lori Otter, the Idaho STEM Action Center, and Dutch Bros of Meridian and Boise.

The money will be used to provide no-and-low-cost STEM-based workshops for kids.

"We're very, very eager to influence young children, so that they see science, technology, engineering and mathematics as perfectly OK for them to engage in, to play in, to succeed in," said Steve Rodoletz, Executive Director of Reuseum Educational, Inc. 

The money was raised through Dutch Bros' "Bucks 4 Kids" give-back day on Sept. 29. 

One dollar from every drink sold on that day, along with a 50-cent match from the Idaho STEM Action Center, contributed to this grant.
